Spritually bullied at Christmas season

leave a comment »

So today, is the 8th of December 2015. I felt spiritually bullied. In Spain, today is a public holiday because Spain celebrates The Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

It is celebrating the solemn belief in the Immaculate Conception of theBlessed Virgin Mary. It is celebrated on December 8, nine months before the feast of the Nativity of Mary, which is celebrated on September 8. It is one of the most important Marian feasts celebrated in the liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic Church celebrated worldwide. (source: wiki)

I perfectly understand that people dont share the same belief, but in a group where I am in, people mock, ridicule, and make joke on this day. I felt so.. so sad. Been living in the country where Islam is the majority belief, I have never felt spiritually bullied like today. What did Jesus do to them that they do this to him?

They wrote:

“We should all be spending the day preparing our hearts for baby Jesus, not preparing our papers.”

“Whatever tongue emoticon grin emoticon”

“Rebels, all the way!”

“Here’s something in honor of Baby Jesus day: ”

They said I am living in a place where people are open minded, sensitive, and full with acceptance. Like you know, embracing minority, oppresed and outlier. Well, today I could testify that they are open minded, sensitive and full with acceptance to things that they agree upon. If they disagree, they wont.

This reminds me of a picture on twitter:

Hope things are better in the coming day. I miss my Christmas full of love, peace and happiness. Dear God. Why is it so hard to have faith on You?
